ISO 1 1 83-1 :2004(E)
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) ìs a worldwide federatìon of national standards bodies
(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally oarried out through ISO
technical committees. Each member body Interested In a subject for which a technicat committee has been
established has the right to be represented on that committee. Intemational organizations, governmental and
non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISOcoIIaborates closely with the
Intemational Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on aII matters of electrotechnìcal standardization.
Internatìonﬁal Standards are drafted in accordance wlth the ruIes given in the ISOIiEC Directives, Part 2.
The main task of technìcal committees is to preparo Intemationat Standards. Draft International Standards
adopted by the technical committees are cìrculated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an
Intemational Standard requires approval by at Ieast 75 % 0t the member bodies casting a vote.
Attention is drawn to the possibìlity that some of the etements of this document may be the subject of patent
rights. ISO shall not be hetd responsìble for identifyìng any or aII such patent rights. .

The test atmosphere shaII be in accordance with ISO 291. In general, oonditioning specimens to constant
temperature is not required, because the determination itself brings the specimen to the constant temperature
of the test.
Specimens which change in density during the test to such an extent that the change is greater than the
required accuracy shall be conditioned prior Io measurement in accordance with the applicable material
speciﬂcation. When changes in density with time or atmospheric conditions are the primary purpose of the
measurements, the specimens shaII be conditioned as described in the materia! speciﬁcation and, if no
material speciﬁcation exists, then as agreed upon by the interested parties.

_22.214.171.124 Liquid bath (see 126.96.36.199).
188.8.131.52 Glass cylinder, of capacity 250 ml.
184.108.40.206 Thermometer, graduated at 0,1°C intervals, with a range suitable for measuring the test
220.127.116.11 Volumetric ﬂask, capacity 100 ml.
18.104.22.168 Flat-tipped glass rod stirrer.
Burette, capacity 25 ml, of a design which enables it to be kept in the liquid bath (22.214.171.124),
capable of dispensing 0,1 ml portìons of liquid. .
Required are two miscible Iiquids of different densities. One shall have a density just below that of the test
material and the other a density higher than that 0t the test material. Densities of various Iiquids are given in
Annex A as a guide. If necessary, carry out a rapid preliminary test in a few millilitres of the Iiquid.
The liquid with which the specimen comes into contact during the measurement shall have no effect on the
specimens shall be in a suitable void-free form.
126.96.36.199 By means of the volumetrie ﬂask (188.8.131.52), accurately measure 100 ml of the less dense
immersion Iiquid (see 5.3.2) into the clean, dry 250 mi glass cylinder (184.108.40.206). Put the cylinder into the iiquid

air bubbles. Allow the cylinder and its Contents to stabilize at the bath temperature, stirring at intervals.
NOTE _ - It is recommended that the thermometer (22.214.171.124) be kept permanently in the liquid. This makes it possible to
check that thermal equilibrium is attained et the time of measurement and, in particular, that the heat of dilution has been
126.96.36.199 When the temperature of the iiquid is 23 °C 10,5 °C (or 27 °C i 0,5 °C), add the more dense
immersion Iiquid millititre by millilitre from the burette (188.8.131.52). Stir the iiquid after each addition by means of
the glass rod (184.108.40.206), held vertically, and avoid producing air bubbles.
After each addition of the more dense liquid and mixing, observe the behaviour of the pieces of test specimen.
